ICELINK / iPod

Does anyone here have an iPod installed and working in their car and can recommend a good installer in the GTA?

Originally wanted to get it installed at a dealer, and iPodMyBMW would've been a good option, except it doesn't support systems with DSP (standard on the Z4 3.0). IceLink by Denison offers a solution that allows you to control the iPod from the steering wheel and seems like a good, if pricey solution. Does anyone have experience with ICELink?

Thanks is advance.

Apple and BMW has a partnership. The dealer can install IPOD in your BMW.

Yet another BMW HWY Robbery. Instead of coming up with MP3 capable decks they run to the most expensive MP3 player manufacturer, create a $20 adapter from (possibly) an Asian sweatshop and hassle people for a ghetto solution

Gotta love the domestic car manufacturers sometimes. I heard some of the new chevy trucks etc come with MP3 decks for a minimal upgrade cost

Thanks for the suggestion, but I like being able to still control the player from the steering wheel. I also like keeping the factory look when I mod.

I installed the Blitzsafe AUX input and it works like a charm. I don't have a ipod but I have a portable MP3 player and it works perfectly and 0 noise through the system. Just 1 mini 1/8" plug is all that is needed.
